A moment to breathe and reflect

This is always the time of year when I like to stop and really look back at what the year has given me in terms
of gifts, lessons and challenges too. Mostly there have been gifts- the success of my business has been truly magical- and of course with that growth has come many lessons and more challenges than I would have liked, but together they have made up one of the most amazing years of my life. I am truly grateful.
Finding this tree in Santa Barbara recently was one of my favorite things this year- now these are roots!
